Thank God for the internet, where I found Matthew Wilkinson. A very professional company and a pleasure to work with. My case was won and I would not hesitate to recommend Matthew Wilkinson to anyone who needed Specialist Solicitors.
The service I received from the first phone call was excellent. The stress and worry of my claim was taken away by the understanding manner of my adviser.
All of my communications have been by telephone. An excellent service provided. Everything explained fully so as to be easily understood. Many thanks for your superb service. You gave me an understanding of everything you did. I was kept fully informed of your progress at every stage of the proceedure. Your advise and support was of a very high standard. Many Thanks.
Very good. You took a risk as it was such short notice and we never met it was a long distance relationship but a successful one. Thank you again Mr Zand letters to the Defendant were amazing!!
Great Service, with no hassle. Exceeded my expectations.
Mr Wilkinson was dedicated to getting a positive outcome from day one. I dealt with almost a dozen Solicitors, Advisors and Experts over the years ONLY Matthew Wilkinson knew what he was doing. Thanks! A sincere thanks for all your kindness. You made our life better.
I am very pleased with the service received from Matthew Wilkinson. I was informed through the process about the different options available for me and this enabled me to make an informed decision. I could not have got a better outcome! Many Thanks.
After my previous Solicitor let me down badly, I approached yourselves and was told by Matthew Large to see if I could get another Solicitor regarding my injury claim after approaching seven Solicitors that wouldn’t take it and because of the time limit I went back to Matthew Large who took it on as a negligence claim and after a lengthy drawn out case, Matthew Large proved negligence against my previous Solicitor and obtained me compensation, which turned out to be a battle between Insurers. I will use Matthew Wilkinson Solicitors again and would recommend them to others, Matthew Large worked hard at the case, was straight talking and any problems you could ring in the office and he would speak to you personally.
Many thanks for your professional efficient service. I was particularly impressed with the way my case was dealt with in a personal compassionate manner and was always kept informed of progress of the case on a regular basis. I was very pleased at any time to be able to contact Matthew personally by phone with any concerns or questions I may have had regarding my case. Once again thanks for an excellent service and positive outcome, I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone who requires this type of service.
